So mumsnet have recently changed the option to highlight both OP's and your own posts in a specific colour. They claim that only 8% of posters use this feature and hence it's unneeded.

I and some others disagree grin So please if you would, can you answer the following questions for me? Either to protest the change or to support MNHQ, I don't mind, just interested in this 8%. Copy and paste your answer.

No discussion of the issue (if possible) - there are already two threads in Site Stuff about it. If you want to discuss it, here's one: Link

So firstly:
Do you use the highlight posts feature?

If yes
Yes, I tried it, but I didn't like it.
Yes, I use it on the desktop and mobile site but not the app.
Yes and I would like to keep it.

If no
No, I didn't know that you could do this.
Not interested in a highlighting option.
Only use the app and it's not an option on there.

Ta very much smile

YES, it's invaluable.

In long threads, it's mostly updates from OP that I want to read, and it makes this so much easier.

I want it on the app.

Don't get rid of it, please!!!!!! sad

Yes I use it.

Please keep it.

Fillybuster Wed 05-Aug-15 12:25:34

Oooh, I never knew about this....but now that I do, I can see how useful it would be.

Classic user experience issue: if your users aren't aware of a feature, they don't use it - then the stats indicate it isn't useful, so you clean up your code to remove extraneous stuff!

MN, please bring it back (and add it to the app too!) and then tell everyone all about it smile

happygirl87 Wed 05-Aug-15 12:25:42

Yes and I would like to keep it. Still working for me on the mobile site...
